EASTER THANK YOU
Thank you to those who have worked so hard on our behalf in the preparation and celebration of Lent and Easter.
To our environment group for the displays, banners, prayer tree, Easter Garden, flowers, candles, and all the other bits and pieces that enhanced the journey so much.
To those who prepared and presented the beautiful prayers and reflections for our 40 Hours Adoration as Lent began and the Vigil at the Altar of Repose on Holy Thursday Night.
To our faithful band of cleaners and those who augmented them for looking after the Church, inside and out, with such loving care and commitment.
To the Folk Group, Cantors, Youth Ensemble, children’s choir, combined choirs, Garda Choir, organists and music coordinators – the music has been appropriate and wonderful as ever.
To our readers; Eucharistic ministers, welcome team, altar servers, car park attendants, collectors and counters, sacristans, altar society; Civil Defence, and all who exercised their ministries in a whole variety of way.
To the Family Groups and Family Ministry Team who ensure the presence and participation of the children and who do so much to help make our parish feel like a true family of faith and love.
To those who prepared and accompanied our catechumens for Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.
To those who volunteered to have their feet washed.
To those who presented our Lenten talks in the upper room and to the Passionist Community who celebrated Masses, conducted Services, heard confessions, and preached the 7 Last Words, and to those frailer members who prayed with us and for us.
Also to those who prepared, printed, copied, folded and distributed leaflets for the various services.
And lastly to those who through human frailty I may have forgotten.
Thank you is never enough – but it’s all we have, and to them and to you I offer an Easter Blessing
